Franklin United Football Club


In order to meet the strict COVID-19 criteria set by the government for playing sport during Level 2, Franklin United have issued a set of Return to Play Protocols. These include a requirement for all players, coaches and members involved to complete our declaration form available here.

Our vision is to create a sustainable pathway to the top level for all football players, coaches and referees within the Franklin community.

We are challenging ourselves to change history and the past has shown us that the more talented youth players in our region have had to pursue their goals by joining an inner city club outside of the Franklin area. Without Franklin United, the opportunity for a pathway does not exist and this is putting extra pressure on local households and families, both socially and financially. Read on...
